“Them Dirty Blues”: A Night with Cannonball Adderley
December 5

The big man with the big sound, Cannonball Adderley made the alto sax sing as never before with his earthy, bluesy tones. As a major influence and contributor to hard-bop jazz, he was a strong sideman for Miles Davis and led his own group for many years. Julian Pressley brings his sax to the Cannonball chair with the Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble rhythm section. Songs include “Work Song,” “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” “Sack O’ Woe,” “Jeannine,” and more. Woodmere thanks Glenmede for their generous support of this performance.
